Once again, LeBron James, The four-time NBA champion jumped into the Twitter universe, this time to mock the 18 years old Kyle Rittenhouse for crying while on the stand as he defended himself against multiple homicide charges in the most famous trial in years.
“What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court.”
Rittenhouse was being questioned by his defense attorneys when he broke down, crying uncontrollably, as he detailed the events of the night he shot and killed two rioters in the streets of Kenosha, Wisconsin.
“What tears????? I didn’t see one. Man knock it off! That boy ate some lemon heads before walking into court,” James tweeted.

Critics lambasted James on social media, with some referring to him as a “coward,” and others suggesting he didn’t have the credibility to chime in on Rittenhouse’s emotions considering he was “known as the king of faking injuries, flopping, and crying to refs.” James is an outspoken progressive on domestic political issues.
“You’re a coward. Oh, and would you be saying this if he weren’t white? Or if he held the same political views as you did?” once critic wrote.
You’re a coward.
Oh, and would you be saying this if he weren’t white? Or if he held the same political views as you did? https://t.co/CBJT3gOf8z

You’re literally known as the king of faking injuries, flopping, and crying to refs.

James, who has been criticized for refusing to speak out on Chinese human rights abuses, was blasted by some critics over his association with the communist state through his partnership with Nike.
Hey @KingJames since you have time to make fun of a teenager in court, surely you have the time to announce you support human rights in China, right? I’d hate for you to keep shutting up and dribbling for Chairman Xi. https://t.co/ZV9NfcprjT

This is not the first time LeBron has spoken too quickly.
Who can forget LeBron’s calling for a white police officer to be fired and implied the officer, who actually save a young black girl’s life, should be killed too.
His tweet was met with public backlash, and James deleted it within hours of posting.
LeBron James has now deleted the tweet calling for the cop to be arrested for shooting the woman armed with a knife, but don’t worry. The internet is forever.
I blurred out the officer’s face on purpose. pic.twitter.com/dbv5dPrZ87

“I fueled the wrong conversation about Ma’Khia Bryant and I owe it to her and this movement to change it,” James said in another tweet on Monday.
I fueled the wrong conversation about Ma’Khia Bryant and I owe it to her and this movement to change it. Thank you @fabiolacineas for educating us about Ma’Khia and her story and why this needs to be about her. https://t.co/Owh1vDJWXi #sayhername #Blacklivesmatter
